Ubisoft unveiled more details of its upcoming Far Cry 6 and the official release date of Oct. 7. This news comes a day after a video of the footage leaked on the internet spoiling much of the surprise. Polish YouTube Rojson uploaded the Far Cry 6 gameplay video Thursday and quickly removed it, but not before it was saved and uploaded by others.
Far Cry 6 puts players in the role of Dani Rojas, a native of the Caribbean island Yara that has been under the rule of “El Presidente” Antón Castillo. In the fight for the island, Dani has access to customized weapons such as a handgun with a large drum magazine and a launcher that shoots out burnt CDs of Los del Rio’s ’90s hit “Macarena.”
Dani’s arsenal also includes backpacks. These packs won’t hold any books, but instead, they can create a flame circle or shoot missiles. There are also more ways to get around the island of Yara, whether it be on horseback, a classic ’50s Chevy sedan with a plow on it or a muscle car with machine guns bolted onto the roof.
Dani won’t be alone in the fight. There is a pet dog that can be used as a distraction to get the jump on enemies or a pet crocodile that can take down the bad guys.
Another subtle change that’s noticeable in the leaked video is the destructible environments. The Far Cry series has been known for making much of the environment interactive, but it looks like in Far Cry 6 explosives will do far more damage such as bringing down trees and causing more smoke to fill the air, making it harder to see right after an explosion.
Far Cry 6 comes to PS4, Xbox One, , PC and Stadia when it comes out sometime later this year.,
Ubisoft didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
